Comfort

Comfort is an experimental 360 VR film concerning queerness, expression of identity, and bending binaries. ****Contains some light nudity.****

Madeline Holland - Director, Talent, Planner, Lighting Designer, Sound Designer, Editor

The easiest, and preferred, way to watch Comfort in 360 is to use YouTube on a mobile device, standing and rotating, with headphones on or earbuds in. The video also works on desktop on YouTube by dragging with the mouse to rotate. In order to use the mp4 file, a recent version of VLC or another 360-compatible media player must be used, otherwise it will stretch the view without accounting for the perspective or allowing rotation.
